7:05 am
angeles. i think in the end you and i will talk about this, a lot of the chattering class will debate it back and forth, but in the end, i don't think it's going to make any difference to the success or failure of the obama presidency. if the obama presidency goes down because barack obama went to copenhagen, it wasn't much of a presidency to start with. i think this president's success will be judged by how other things come out, not the least of which is afghanistan, iran and health care. >> 14 hours on an and he were will not maoe or break his presidency. but at the aim sometime time, we've got iran coming to a boiling point, afghanistan waiting if a decision on how many troops should or should not be sent this, health care$7$ fufflmng$on the back bu. does he have time to do this? >> oh, i think the white house would argue that he does. could you make the case that he doesn't, but, again, he's not going to decide what to do about
7:06 am
afghanistan other than tver the hours. those are the questions, though that really do count. and i have to tell you right now there is a total and wholesale reassessment of our strategy in afghanistan going on. remember in march the president told us that he had a new strategy, he sent a new general over there to carry out that strategy. now here we are going over that total strategy once gagain? how many troops le send or is he going to send no troops? the answer is he simply hasn't decided yet. we have a total reassessment of what to do with b. afghanistan going on within the white house and throughout the administration right now. >> bof$wglmeffer, thanks so much forgetting up for us. do appreciate it. >> you bet. now we move to a brutal beating in chicago. four teenagers have been charged with$fmvwt-degree$muvdev.

a little bit. first, though, lawyers for roman polanski filed a motion in switzerland today to get him released from jail. the victim of the director of such classic films as "the pianist" and "chinatown" isn't talking right now, but several years ago, she spoke to "early show" national correspondent hattie kauffman. she joins us now from los angeles. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. polanski's victim, samantha geimer, says she has for given him. spoi with her in 2003 when polanski was nominated for an oscar for his film, "the pianist." at that time, she was adamant that it is never too late for justice to be served. a plan that geimer was a 13-year-old who wanted to be a movie star. roman polanski was one of hollywood's hottest directors when they met in 1977 for a if he toe shoot. >> he took topless pictures of me which i think in the back of my head i was thinking they'll be cropped or it's in european magazine and we all know they show breasts in european
7:33 am
magazines. >> reporter: samantha did not therl mother about the pictures. polanski basking in the success of his littest film arranged a second photo shoot, this time at nickel so that's house. >> how did it go from the photo shoot to a rape? >> the last photos were taken in the jacuzzi. with you th but then he got in the jacuzzi and then that's when i started realizing that i might be in trouble or i at the time uncomfortable. i knew it didn't feel right, so i -- i told him that i wanted to get out of the jacuzzi, that the steam was giving me -- i had asthma and i couldn't breathe and i thought maybe she take me home. i j u.s. made that up. so he said, okay, can out now and gave me -- grabbed a towel, went in the house. and that's also when he said, well, here, take this little -- this had help you, a little piece of a pill, to relax my asthma attack. >> what was the pill? >> it was a piece of a qua lewd. >> so then you have sex against your will. this is not consents all. >> this is not consents all.
7:34 am
i was no, no. >> reporter: but this time samantha did call her mom who called the police. he was charged with six felony countses. he claimed the sex was consents all in that. >> she wasn't unschooled in sexual matters. she was consenting and willing. >> reporter: facing decades behind bar, polanski fled to europe where he's been a fugitive until his arrest this weekend. >> is it too late now for justice to be served? >> it's never too late. it's never too late to go back and fix something that wasn't done right. it's been too long, but it will never be too late. >> reporter: now in, the years since that rape, geimer has settled a civil suit with polanski. earlier this year she asked l.a. prosecutors to drop charges it against him. she said she just wants to move on and get on with her life and she does not want any media attention. >> hattie kauffman in length
7:35 am
this morning. thank you. joining us now from england is novel list robert harris, a friend of roman polanski, who has been working with him on a film adaptation of his book the "ghost." mr. harris, good morning. >> reporter: go . >> good morning. >> did roman polanski live in fear? >> no. certainly not that i've seen. i've been working with him pretty continuously for three years. and he traveled very freely back and forth between france and switzerland. he has a house in switzerland, which is why it seems so astonishing when he was actually picked up at the airport on saturday night because he could have been picked up at anytime if they wanted to do so. >> so he was not cautious about his movements? >> no, not at all. i've known him go off in the last year or two all over the world to china, to egypt, to greece.
7:36 am
"the ghost" finished shooting this year. about he spent three months in germany. >> what was his attitude toward all of this, toward this case, this incident that happened some 30 years ago? >> well, you know, he has young children of his own now, to whom he's devoted. i think he's embarrassed about it for them. i would imagine that he is. when this hbo documentary, roman polanski, wanted and desired, came out last year, i think he thought it was a turning point for him because that film, while not glossing over the seriousness of what happened, nevertheless did show the things that had gone on behind the scenes with the judge changing his mind on the plea bargain, which was the reason why he fled to europe. i think he thought at that point nefs a position to get the whole thing thrown out. it may be that he then became too overconfident, too aggressive in his legal action in los angeles, their patience finally snapped.
7:37 am
and really a half-hearted pursuit over the past 30 years became suddenly much more intense. >> so so this hbo documentary, which he helped -- he collaborated with, may, in fact -- >> no he didn't actually. >> but may in fact have or at least was produced with his consent, shall we say? >> well, yes. he was interviewed for it. >> but it may have, in fact, had an opposite effect and blown up in his face. >> well, i think that's the irony here, yes. i think just takes looked as though he was winning a kind of battle on this issue, he sowed the seeds of his own defeat and i think the los angeles prosecutors have been stung some to action by that movie. i can't see otherwise why the swiss should suddenly have arrested him after all this time. they are now cooperating much more fully with america and
7:38 am
other countries after the credit crash and it may be that they're just trying to show that they're keen boys. >> robert harris, thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. coming up, the link between your shoes and your health. we'll show you how to pick shoes that won't hurt you. when we come back. pollen.
